Norma's Moist Lemon Glazed Poppy Seed Bread

Norma DeRemer


I have made this bread for so many years and given it to friends and family for gifts. It is so moist and freezes well also. Some think it's more like a cake than a bread. I make 4 mini loaves from this recipe or one big loaf and it takes only 30 minutes to bake. If your a lemon lover you must try this recipe. I'm sure you will love it.
